In today’s busy,expensive world everyone around us is working hard for making their life better and beautiful. But sometime some people really put everything that matters secondary for money.
Yesterday I was talking to my colleague regarding his recent on site trip and experiences there. He was in UK for 8 odd months,Wife couldn’t go with him because of her job.So wife and daughter were back home in Pune. My friend and I used to talk on regular basis as to how is he missing his daughter and all the fun of being together. So when he returned I asked him..how h felt after meeting his daughter after so long??? His reply was shocking..he said “Initially for 1 day she didn’t recognise me at all” poor baby was busy in figuring out,who this fellow is..and how he appeared all of sudden from nowhere.
Now, the twist to this story…The friend and his wifey dear both are in IT company means leading a hectic life and the baby was not on their priority list when the baby happened…his wife being too ambitious for career, never wanted to give up the job…so initially,like every other working couple they opted for full-time Aya..but after few days it became difficult for them to manage everything..and the solution they found to this was to send the baby @ the age of 15 months to the guy’ parents..and his parents are taking care of baby for past 1 year. Their sweet lil baby started speaking and says “Dad disappeared and Mumma left me” 😦 😦
I was shocked and angry when I heard all this..My question to him was “Why the job/money is so important for you both rather than your baby” ? To this his reply was “My wife never listens…she never wanted baby and now she doesn’t want to waste her precious time in babysitting”. I was like What???????????? How can a mother be so rock hearted..don’t she understands the need of the small baby? Is a career so important over baby? I understand everyone has their priorities and preferences in life. I have even seen people who willingly planned to NOT have kids because of their career aspirations..but this is really very disgusting..I mean you bring a soul in this world and literally abandon it ???? just for your stupid job???
To be very frank I lost all the respect for this friend and his wife for whatever they have chosen to do. Do you think career comes before your family ??
